    Gioco del Ponte 2020

    Date: 27 June 2020

    Gioco del Ponte 2020 will take place on Saturday, June 27, 2020, on the Ponte di Mezzo, in Pisa, as part of the series of events entitled Pisan June 2020.   SHORT HISTORY Gioco del Ponte (Battle of the Bridge) has its roots in an ancient violent game called Mazzascudo, held on the day of Sant’Antonio Abate, on January 17. On this occasion, the citizens of the city, divided into two factions, fought themselves with clubs and shields, in the current Piazza dei Cavalieri. The game was banned by the Florentines after the occupation of Pisa, in 1407. Over the centuries, the game was repeatedly revived and interrupted, undergoing progressive changes to the original formula. At a certain time, the Florentines invented a dispute that was placed on the Ponte di Mezzo, with the clubs and shields being replaced by a wooden board called the Targone. The last battle disputed after this system dates back to February 6, 1807, when the queen regent of Etruria, Maria Luisa, suspended the game again. The modern version of the game appeared in 1935. During the Second World War, due also to the demolition of the Ponte di Mezzo, the game was suspended. Revived Read more [...]
